Quote# 141460

We sneer at the ancients for their worship of the sun, thinking ourselves too sophisticated for such things.

But we’re tricked into sun-worship by modern purveyors of science.

They place the sun in the center of our system, teach us to fear it and revere it.

And we obey.

No, her relationship with Chad McStationery is NOT incestuous.

You know, if you stayed in school a bit longer you would realize that the sun is NOT the center of the universe.

She's anti science and flat earther. It says it all about her

They ... teach us to fear it and revere it.


Really? How? When? Where?

thinking ourselves too sophisticated for such things


Right!

Worshipping a wandering hippie who was killed at the drop of a hat as the incarnate son of an almighty God is much more sophisticated.

Meanwhile, Stacey, you continue to pull "wisdom" from Uranus.

We put the sun in the center of our "solar system". Did you learn a brand new definition of "solar system"?

Who, in an even remotely industrialized country, worships the sun now?

At least the sun is proven to exist, unlike your deity there, Stacey. Get the fuck off Twitter. Your presence is making it even stupider, & considering the constant tweets by Pig Vomit himself, not to mention the various other majini that pollute it, that's really saying something.

The only thing I fear about the sun is that it can fry me like a chicken wing.

The only time I ever hear anyone talk about fearing the sun is in the middle of summer, when we are warned about sunburn and sunstroke.

You know, I'm pretty sure that's now how sun worship and science works.

Wrong section, you're looking for Sexists Say the Darnedest Things!

Thank you, in that context what she says makes so much more sense than when I first read it. Still stupid, but at least there is some logic now.

Why do you sneer at the ancients?

We don't sneer at you not-so-ancients for your worship of a Babylonian(?) War and/or Moon god calling himself God/Allah/YHWH. Sure, we're too sophisticated for such things, but you still have a right to worship whatever you want.

Purveyors of science?

The Sun was placed in the center of our solar system many hundred years ago. Or rather, about 4 billion years ago, but humans realized it was in the center about 4 hundred years ago (though some had theorized about it as early as 300 BCE). 16th century scientists are hardly modern purveyors of science...

Scientists rather teach you to take advantage of the sun, to be aware of both the dangers, and the strength and usefulness.

No, the sun is placed at the center of our solar system because the earth and all the planets orbit it. I don't remember any scientists or teachers ever telling me to worship the sun. Though we should revere it because it is the source of life on our planet. Without the sun life on earth would disappear very quickly.

Fear it? What's there to fear?

Melanoma. And wrinkles.

The Sun IS

The ancients had a point, a well placed point in their perspective.
You DON'T

Yes, why do you think they call it the solar system? You take us back Nicholas Copernicus' day, when the Heliocentric view of the universe, was considered heresy.

So maybe those Romans were right about Sol Invictus. I'm certainly the conquered one, with the lobster-red skin, if I stay @ the beach too long!

@K'Zad Bhat

I made the mistake of clicking the link to her Twitter account. Her tweets were why I pointed out she's anti science and flat eather

I think I’d manage.

I like it when the sun comes up I the morning.

Not the center of the universe. Just the solar system.

Which is incredibly insignificant, in the grand scheme of things.
